Ace Marks Shoes
Ace Marks was created in 2012 and their high-quality shoes are handcrafted in Italy using the finest materials. They aim to produce a pair of shoes that provides a little bit of luxury that does not leave your wallet empty.
I was sent a pair of Italian dress shoes, Monkstrap Kurt Brown antique. Ace Marks state on their website, that both the quality and comfort of their products will be clear as soon as you receive your first pair of shoes, and this is absolutely true. The comfort you feel when you put on these shoes is second to none. You can really feel the attention that has gone into every aspect of designing and handcrafting them.
These shoes are made from premium quality 100% calfskin leather and, as with all Ace Marks shoes, they have a durable Blake flex construction that makes them soft and wearable from the start, so there’s no need to ‘wear them in’.
I really like the adjustable double buckle closures as you can make them as tight or loose as you like. However, they are designed to slip on, so once you have tightened the buckles to your preferred fit there is no need to undo them. Ace Marks even includes a shoehorn in the box to help you ease them on.
What makes this brand stand out is the outstanding quality of their shoes, affordable prices and, above all, their buy-back program. When you make a selection from their online catalogue, you are given the option to post back your old Ace Marks and receive a credit towards the purchase of a new full-priced pair.
They donate all the used shoes to Career Gear, which helps men to get back on their feet and re-enter the workforce. So check out their website, you do not need any more reasons to buy shoes from Ace Marks.
